While web proxy’s are far less powerful then normal proxy’s, they are really easy to use. Web proxy’s are very useful on a school, a library or any other public place where internet traffic is controlled and some pages are blocked. Web proxy’s are easily accessible whenever you are able to access a web browser. Like all software newer versions of web proxy’s support newer techniques. You can also use a web proxy to ensure your privacy to the other end or increase page load times on low bandwidth internet connections by using the web proxy’s available options.
Type of web proxy’s
There are a lot of web proxy’s available on the internet, but we only focus on Glype Proxy and PHProxy because these are highly available all around.
Glype proxy options and settings:
Encrypts the URL of the page you are viewing for increased privacy. Note: this option is intended to obscure URLs and does not provide security. Use SSL for actual security.
This provides a mini-form at the top of each page that allows you to quickly jump to another site without returning to our homepage
Force Temporary Cookies
This option overrides the expiry date for all cookies and sets it to at the end of the session only – all cookies will be deleted when you shut your browser.
Remove scripts to protect your anonymity and speed up page loads. However, not all sites will provide an HTML-only alternative.
Remove Page Titles
Removes titles from proxied pages
You can increase page load times by removing unnecessary Flash, Java and other objects. If not removed, these may also compromise your anonymity
